With "open" menu option - always empty DXFs #978
See drawing when i open a DXF. :)
Empty drawing on DXF load.
When I open librecad and use open in the menu, i have an empty drawing. (autozoom tried ;) ).
When I open a DXF (made by librecad) by double click on explorer, it works.
Steps to reproduce or sample file
Using open menu option on a DXF file (not tried on other file types).
Operating System and LibreCAD version info
OS: Windows 10 64bits home (french)
Looking at rs_filterdxf1.cpp, the import code appears to be ported from qcad (and it's a mess), and the export was never implemented. Perhaps some heuristics could be identified in order to assist in correctly identifying DXFs that use the nonstandard QCAD format. QCAD 1.x examples would need to be located for inspection and testing in order to implement this.
I recommend discontinuing this feature. It would be of limited value even if implemented, and qcad must already support such a conversion anyhow if it was ever needed.
